AmeCon 2008

28th July 2012: Photoshoot! So I never actually got a photoshoot done of this costume, due to lack of a willing photographer/time/generally being a bit rubbish about getting anything photographed.

And thus I got chatting with the amazing Yuka about all the wonderful things I've made in the years we're known each other and that I STILL hadn't gotten pictures of this dress which she recalled sat in my living room years ago. So she and her lovely gentleman agreed to be so kind as to take some pictures of this dress. Yay!

Four years on and two children later and I was amazed to actually get into this dress at all, though with decidedly more cleavage than originally!

Retiring my photos to make room for lovely pics, but have to save this lovely detailed shot of the painstakingly made lace, of which I am still rather proud.

The amount of work you put into this is astounding, and I really enjoyed reading about your construction and research there. I still can’t get over that fact that you made your own lace, it, and everything else about this dress is completely perfect! You totally did justice to a gorgeous design.
